Welcome to Year 1


A place full of opportunities to make happy memories.

Our teachers this year are Mrs Harper and Mrs Sheasby. We are also supported by Mrs Hopkins and Mr Devey.


Summer term will provide children in year 1 opportunities to extend their experiences and build on their knowledge of writing stories and using numbers to solve simple problems. Please feel free to make an appointment at the school office to talk about your child any time. 


We have daily phonics lessons. Our teachers use the Letters and Sounds  phonics resource which aims to build on children's listening and speaking skills, and to prepare children for reading by developing their phonic knowledge. Each year group works through different phases starting at phase 1 in Nursery until the end of Year 2 when children complete phase 6. In Year 1 we are currently working on phase 4 and 5. During the Summer term we are preparing for the phonics test.  Take a look at the Letters and Sounds website to find out more.....
